Brussels, December 7 2017 – earlier this year EMCC commissioned research into the state of play in European Coaching and Mentoring. The research was undertaken by a team of researchers in 50 countries across Europe and was sponsored by The Henley Centre for Coaching.
Launching the executive report, Zoltán Csigás, EMCC International Vice-president Research said ‘This is a huge milestone/major achievement for EMCC International as we were able to tap into the collective insights of the coaching and mentoring community in Europe. EMCC International leads the way in generating and supporting research that furthers the professionalisation of coaching, mentoring and supervision. For us, this report is proof of the commitment and the engagement of members of the industry in cooperating with EMCC.’
The executive report provides an overview of the main findings from the research project with the aim of deepening understanding of, and widening engagement of, coaching and mentoring.
The report covers the research and findings into coaching and mentoring practice, reflective practice and supervision, continuous professional development, conceptual models and approaches, diversity of approaches, evaluation, contracting for corporate engagements, ethics, and commissioning.
Emphasising the importance of the executive report’s findings, Dr Jonathan Passmore (Director of the Henley Centre for Coaching) said ‘The European Coaching and Mentoring survey completed in a partnership between EMCC and the Henley Business School provides a fascinating insight into coaching and mentoring across Europe. The survey reveals both the need for coaches/mentors to be better train to manage clients with mental health issues, as well as to improve the quality of ethical standards and contracting. Coaching and mentoring has become a major industry and thus coaches/mentors need to operate to the highest standards because the unique access they have to individual and organisations.’
